An outstanding marathon event will take place on Saturday, May 6, 2023 from 9am through 7pm at the Holtschneider Performance Center. DePaul Community Music Division will host its 27th annual Performathon to benefit need-based scholarships, enrichment programs for all, and community partnerships with under resourced CPS schools. This PERFORMATHON marks 35 years of music-making at DePaul Community Music Division. To celebrate this momentous occasion, our goal is to raise $35,000 to assist in removing financial barriers for children who could not otherwise pursue quality music studies.
Over 200 students of all ages from beginning to advanced levels will perform on many different instruments in various musical styles in solo and collaborative settings in three different venues throughout the day. We are proud of the achievement of our students and the dedication of our faculty and staff who work together to create a successful event.

On behalf of the entire DePaul Community Music Division and School of Music, our sincere thanks for your commitment and support.

Many families are not able to meet the financial demands of first-class quality music education for their children. The Community Music Division assists with scholarship support. Since 1997, we have awarded more than 700 scholarships for both need and talent, and for the past two years have provided tuition free instruction to students in under-resourced public schools in the Chicago area through our CPS Teaching Artist Partnership Program. In addition, we have provided annual enrichment opportunities for all of our on-site students through Suzuki workshops, chamber fests, and concerto opportunities.
